The old facility is a cozy one with seating for around 300 thus promoting the fact for an early arrival for a place to sit on the home side across from the teams and scorers' table.

In short, it might take some time to develop that "home court" feel. But judging by the enthusiasm shown Satur- day night, it shouldn't take too long. We're glad the facility won't fall to a wrecking ball. It will still be used as a practice court and physi- cal education facility. That will enable the elementary kids get a taste of what the tradition is. Beginning tonight, the Lady Jackets and Blue- jackets will be playing in unfamiliar surroundings. We're hopingthat support- ive crowd follows them wherever they play. While that happens, the old gymnasium will sit dark and empty. But it won't quiet the spirits of its glorious past.

Coyle responded with 18-straight points for a 29-2 first quar- ter lead. Coyle steadily added it its lead in the second quar- ter while giving up only three free throws before Claremore Christian finally connected on a field goal that came at the 1:32 mark.
